By adjust, please realize he's figured you out. Put a knotted halter on him and hold the lead shank about 3' from the halter with your right hand. With a lunge whip in your left (hold onto the lash) let the tip touch the ground behind you. Ask him to walk with a click or kissing sound and start walking, shoulders straight and focus on something about a hundred feet away. When he stops, raise the whip up to about waist height and let it touch him. As long as he moves, even a step sideways, he's done as you've asked. Just keep doing this with your focus ahead of you and he'll soon start walking as soon as you move the whip. If there is concern about him crowding you, flap your right elbow now and again. He doesn't want to bump into it. He may once but likely won't again.
